Rags & Riches, by Emily Wood & a #giveaway

Business and Pleasure, Book One

Can mixing business and pleasure ever result in a happy ending?

When sexy, rich Lawrence Russo asks Mia to come and work for him in Italy for two weeks, she jumps at the chance. After all, it beats pole dancing, and the salary he offers her is practically obscene.

A relationship quickly begins to develop between the two, but Mia can't help but wonder if Lawrence's feelings for her are genuine or if he feels he's just paying for a service.

Even if their relationship is strong enough to survive her insecurities, what will happen when somebody from her past shows up and threatens to reveal her deepest, darkest secret?

My Review

Mia is exactly the kind of heroine I can relate to. She has skeletons in her closet and has been to hell and back again, but it’s only made her stronger. She’s not been dealt the best card in life, but works hard to survive because at her core she’s a fighter.

Business & Pleasure is such a modern day Cinderella story, with the handsome (and loaded) prince whisking her away and giving everything she’d been too scared to dream about. Or believe could ever happen to her. Will Lawrence be able to convince Mia that she’s the one he wants, or will her dark past be the deal breaker? Why don’t you pick it up and find out for yourself? ;o)

I really enjoyed this short steamy read and will definitely be picking up The Best of Both Worlds.

Here’s a little more about that…

The Best of Both Worlds, Book Two

A choice between two men? If only it were that simple.

Melissa Morgan seems to have it all…her modeling career is taking off and she's engaged to one of the most eligible bachelors in London. But when she finds Jonathan cheating on her again, Melissa finds solace in the arms of Riley, a sexy bar owner trying to recover from the heartbreak of his last relationship. Melissa shouldn't even want Riley, but she can't seem to stay away, especially when she finds in him everything that's missing in her relationship with Jonathan.

Melissa knows she has to make a hard choice, and when it comes to choosing between the life she's always wanted and the man she's falling in love with, she might find out that she can't have the best of both worlds.

Author Info
I have always believed that the best stories are the ones that you can't put down, the ones that transport you to a different place and make you believe in the characters. This is exactly why I write… I have always loved the escapism that reading and writing provides, and there is nothing more exciting than imagining your own set of characters, and then letting them practically write the story for you. Writing has always been a dream of mine, and I'm lucky to have the kind of people around me that have always nurtured and encouraged my passion.

I live a cozy little life in Wales, and when I'm not writing I'm taking care of my young family, studying for a degree in Classical Studies, and training to become a nail technician. I love traveling to new places, meeting new people, and experiencing new things…it's all great inspiration for my books!
